    I got to know Raymond when he was living in Minot and he was one of my favorite people. Always made me laugh as I never knew what he was going to say. He will be missed. Keep his memories during this difficult time.

    I’m so sorry to see this news and only found trying to track him down for a long overdue chat. Ray and I were in South Korea together and stayed in touch for about 20 years but life seemed to get in the way. I came out to visit right after the service and had a blast with him and our mutual friend Les Bollig I drug along. I’m pretty sure I introduced him to Bonnie. I’ll never forget drinking beer in the back yard and him saying “let’s box”, interesting stuff you did in Minot. I wish I hadn’t waited so long to try and reconnect.

    God speed my friend!
